When it comes to clothing, making more sustainable and responsible choices as a consumer is often challenging as many of us have worn mostly clothes from fast fashion brands.
And let’s be honest: it’s not that easy resisting the appeal and accessibility of the fast fashion brands we grew up wearing. Uniqlo, H&M, and Zara, among others – you name it.
But here’s some good news: as the average consumer becomes more eco-conscious, many eco-clothes online brands in Singapore have been popping up, selling fashionable yet sustainable pieces that don’t hurt the bank.
Check out our short compilation of eco-clothes online brands in Singapore that you should consider adding to your closet!
- Something to Hold
The rule with rehauling your closet with more sustainable pieces is that you should start with the basics, so you always have something to wear. Something to Hold can help you with this!
STH is a Singapore-based eco-clothing brand that puts a sustainable take on favourite everyday pieces, including shirts, pants, and skirts. It carries handcrafted leather shoes too!
The story behind its name is quite self-explanatory. The people behind STH aim to produce garments made from sustainable and ethically sourced fabrics that you’d want to wear and hold today, and for many years to come.
That’s because its products are so well-made and durable that they’re probably going to last longer than your favourite fast fashion pieces.
- Wray Crafted
You can rely on Wray Crafted when you want to look cute and stylish while on a weekend brunch with friends but don’t feel like dressing up!
Specialising in dresses, Wray Crafted sells gorgeous summer dresses that any woman would feel fabulous in regardless of the occasion or location. We’ve seen their dresses worn at parks, parties, malls, and even in offices.
As an independent eco-clothes online brand in Singapore, these guys celebrate local artisans and communities by making their creations more accessible, and giving them a livable wage that puts value on their work.
Esse is an eco-clothes online brand in Singapore that champions sustainability by using eco-friendly and organic fabrics and giving its garment workers a livable wage and a safe working environment.
Targeting the everyday working woman, Esse makes pieces that any woman would not only want to add to her closet but wear regularly as well. These include flare dresses, shirts, tank tops, pants, and even overalls.
The first things you’ll notice in every Esse piece are neutral colours, minimal designs, and clean silhouettes. These designs are present in every piece and collection.
Drawing inspiration from traditional African fashion, OliveAnkara is a sustainable womenswear brand that focuses on vibrant, joyful and bold designs.
There aren’t many clothing brands in Singapore that incorporate traditional African designs and prints into their products, so wearing any of its pieces will definitely be a head-turner. We highly recommend their pieces to ladies who always want to be the standout in a room.
Focusing on quality and uniqueness, this brand manufactures clothes in small batches and limited quantities, so no two items will be found the same.
Who says that athleisure can’t be eco-friendly and sustainable? Outfyt will prove you otherwise!
Outfyt is a clothing brand that’s all about minimalism and functionality, so you’ll definitely fall in love with them if this is your personal style. Materials-wise, each piece is made out of a stronger type of nylon that’s made from recycled carpet and fabric scraps.
Since we know that you’ll likely wear them outside of the gym, you’ll be happy to know that Outfyt uses a technology that turns recycled nylon into a tougher fabric that can withstand regular use better than normal nylon.
